SC13 is now well underway with lots happening over the course of the week. Come and visit CRESTA at the European Exascale Booth (#3741) to find out more about the project and to pick up your free CRESTA Rubik Cube!
Also, please do join us at the 'Building on the European Exascale Approach' BOF (Room 210/212) which is being run by CRESTA, Mont-Blanc and DEEP at 12.15pm today for what promises to be both an interesting and informative session.
CRESTA is delighted to announce that we have been awarded time on the the US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) leadership computing facilities at Oak Ridge, through the Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) programme.
Access to these resources enables CRESTA to carry out its world leading science and progress our aim of developing applications and software for the exascale era.
Further details can be obtained from the INCITE press release.
We are delighted to announce that CRESTA has recently published our white paper and case study here.
The white paper focuses on state of the art and a gap analysis for the exascale development environment, whilst the case study looks at extreme weather and the extreme computing behind modelling it.
We hope that you enjoy both of these new publications!
CRESTA is looking forward to once again being well represented at this year’s SC13 which takes place from 17th – 22nd November in Denver, Colorado.
CRESTA’s fourth collaboration meeting was held in September in Helsinki, Sweden. As with all of our previous events, this was very well attended and proved to be very useful.
CRESTA has moved into its final year and it was therefore timely to refocus these meetings slightly – CSC hosted the meeting and arranged for hands on sessions on the Xeon-Phi. We also had a tutorial session on OpenACC and a series of case study talks on utilising the Xeon-Phi and OpenACC. The purpose was to ensure that technology developments within the project are properly exploited by partners, a key feature of our co-design strategy.
In addition to this, we had a series of talks highlighting the work within the project. There were also discussion sessions on how to take different activities forward, such as those activities around disruptive technologies.
All in all this was a great two days, held in the lovely autumnal weather in the beautiful setting around CSC in Espoo, Helsinki.
We look forward to returning to Stockholm for the next collaboration meeting in 2014.
